In a world where dead people come back to life every five minutes, civilian casualties don't exactly tug at the heartstrings. But this abandoned stuffed animal -- photographed by Delyriah of Dragonmaw in the burning ruins of, uh, someplace -- shows the true cost of the wars on Azeroth. On the other hand, it's entirely possible that that evil-looking toy is responsible for all the death, destruction and mayhem in this particular area. It looks like it just stepped out of Are You Afraid of the Dark? and is preparing to eat your eyeballs as soon as you go to sleep.

Do you have any unusual, clever, or interesting World of Warcraft images that are just collecting dust in your screenshots folder? We'd love to see them on Around Azeroth! Sharing your screenshot is as simple as e-mailing aroundazeroth@wow.com with a copy of your shot and a brief explanation of the scene. You could be featured here next!

Remember to include your player name, server and/or guild if you want it mentioned. Please include the word "Azeroth" in your post so it does not get swept into the spam bin. We strongly prefer full screen shots without the UI showing -- use alt-Z to remove it. Please, no more battleground scoreboards, double-mounts, or pictures of the Ninja Turtles in Dalaran.
